Workplace retaliation occurs when an employer takes adverse action against an employee for engaging in legally protected activity. If you have experienced retaliation at work, you might be able to make a claim against the responsible party. 

What is Retaliation?

Retaliation involves an employer punishing an employee for exercising their workplace rights. Some examples of protected activities that could prompt retaliation include:

  • Filing a discrimination claim
  • Complaining to HR about harassment or discrimination
  • Taking legally entitled leave under the FMLA
  • Reporting safety concerns or illegal activity under whistleblower laws

It is illegal for employers to retaliate against employees for engaging in these protected actions. Adverse employment actions that could constitute retaliation include:

  • Demotion or pay cut
  • Unfair discipline or termination
  • Sudden negative performance reviews
  • Reduced hours or schedule change
  • Being passed over for promotion

If the retaliation occurs soon after the protected activity, it raises suspicion of an underlying retaliatory motive.

Proving a Retaliation Claim

To succeed on a workplace retaliation claim, an employee must prove:

  • They engaged in legally protected activity
  • The employer took adverse action against them
  • There is a causal link between the protected activity and the adverse action

The timing of events can demonstrate the necessary connection between the employee's protected activity and the employer's retaliation. Additional evidence, like negative comments from supervisors, may help build a case.

Remedies in Retaliation Cases

Workplace retaliation violates federal, state, and local employee protection laws. Remedies available may include:

  • Reinstatement to a former position
  • Back pay
  • Compensatory damages for pain and suffering
